Ghana striker Richmond Boakye-Yiadom continued his scoring form for Atalanta by netting the opener in their 2-0 win over Spezia on Saturday.

Bonaventura added the second as the Nerazzurri prepare for the upcoming campaign.

The on-loan player has now scored six goals in pre-season and convinced the technical team about his abilities to lead the lines when the Serie A starts ending of this month.

Boakye is yet to play a full season in the Italian top-flight after spells with Sassuolo in the Serie B.

He made two appearances for his former club Genoa including scoring on his debut at age 17.

The 21-year-old spent last season on loan at Spanish side Elche where he was the club’s top scorer in all competitions.

    Hope is not a camouflage . They do it for their teams but they flop big time for the blackstsrs. I rembrr him during the qualifiers & he struggled throughout. Hope he translate that when invited to make up the squad.
